The Learning Center program supports students who have unique behavioral and emotional needs. Smaller class sizes and increased adult support are advantages for the population enrolled within the school. At the Learning Center some students work within the program through high school graduation (graduating with a diploma from their home school); where others are working toward transitioning back to their home districts. The transition into or out of the Learning Center program is a decision involving all members of the IEP team.
The Learning Center offers four educational classrooms focusing on core and extracurricular courses delivered by teacher instruction and the use of computerized curriculum. Students also have physical education available two to four times a week and art class. All classrooms are staffed with certified special education teachers and paraprofessionals.
The staff at the Learning Center recognizes the importance of connecting with community providers for a team approach, working to improve behavioral services for qualifying students enrolled within the school. Therefore, South Central Mental Health provides additional support for qualifying students throughout the school day tailored to the individual need of the student.
